Abstract : Stroke patients have difficulty in activating their paretic muscles with sufficient power to regain their balance by taking quick and effective steps. Impaired Balance is one of the key factors in stroke patients hence the risk of fall has increased since five per year. The decreased ability to maintain balance after stroke could be related to the inability to elect reliable sensory information in order to produce the proper motor action necessary to maintain postural stability. Hence this study aims to compare the effectiveness of fast functional movements and task-oriented exercises with sensory input to improve balance. 30 subjects with sub-acute stroke were divided into two groups. Fast functional movements and stepping training was given to group A (n=15), and task-oriented exercises with sensory input was given to group B (n=15). All subjects were evaluated with ABC Scale and 10-meter walk test. Treatment was scheduled for 45minute 3 days per week for 8 weeks. The paired t-test revealed that the ABC Scale and 10-meter walk test of subjects from both groups improved significantly after 8 weeks of treatment in improving balance. Fast functional movement and stepping training is one of the renounced techniques in improving balance among stroke subjects and its effect is much better when compared with task-oriented exercises with sensory input and can be a rehabilitative service of choice than task-oriented exercises with sensory input
